Once again, the Leased Housing Team has achieved a Section 8 Management Assessment Program (SEMAP) score of 100%, making them designated as a High Performer!
SEMAP enables HUD to better manage the Section 8 tenant based program by identifying PHA Capabilities and deficiencies related to the administration of the Section 8 Program.
This designation from HUD means that HRA will continue to receive the maximum amount in Administrative Fees.
During the month of January RAFT assisted 9 households with $17,811 in funds. There were 30 referrals to RAFT by the HCED staff in the same time period.
In February HRA will have access to an additional $80,000 in RAFT funds for the expanded definition of family (individuals, elders, households seeking reunification of children with DCF).
$67,000 of that will be direct dollars for clients. This additional funding will not require new contracts.
FCRHRA is pleased to announce that five Franklin County towns have been awarded a total $1.784 million in funding through the FY17 Community Development Block Grant program.
